All kind of tickets ara available now.

The most flexible and expensive are the on-day tickets, called Base on trenitalia.com and Flexi on Italotreno.it.

Of course nobody buys BASE and Flexi in advance, but they are displayed with all the other fares. You can't pay more than that.

Ticket sales close 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time.

The offer of discounted tickets (Economy, Super-Economy, Smart etc.) is capacity controlled and they can't be purchased on the day of travel.

Savings come at a price, discounted tickets can't be refunded and changes are restricted. Unlike BASE and Flexi tickets, if you miss your train even for a second discounted tickets are fully wasted.

In short, you trade money for flexibility. On longer routes the price difference can be substantial, especially if There are more than 2 travelling together.

The price of the slow Regionale trains is fixed.

Be sure to validate ticket before you board train and get off at correct Naples station. This is from my memory of two years ago so hope this Info is still correct.

you need to validate Regionale tickets purchased from machines or over the counter.

Fast train (IC and above including Freccia and all of Trenitalia) require specific seat reservations and are not got on other trains so require no validation, also Regionale tickets purchased on phone or internet need no validation, again they have time limits built in.
